Not long after I took the 10:00 P.M. measurements, the snowfall jumped up from moderate to heavy, and we’ve had heavy snow for the past hour as some banding has hit the area.  We’ve also got much bigger flakes now, up to 1.5 cm in diameter.  We’re well past and inch of liquid from this event, with 1.18 inches down as of the 10:00 P.M. observations, and we’ve also reached our highest snowpack level of the season, with approximately 26 inches at the stake.  Our previous high for snowpack was in the 22-inch range reached back on during the December 21-22 event.  A couple of 10:00 P.M. images are below:
